To clarify RAVIOLICAPONI's handy list, the ranks seem to be divided into tiers based on your combined score from each challenge. It appears that Survival Hobbyist is at 20,000 global points, meaning you need to have at least 2500 points in each of the 8 challenge levels. With a few A and S ranks, you can even have it done before you beat all of the challenges.

I was going to write walkthroughs for the levels but, honestly, they're all pretty easy and straight forward. The goal in all of them is to simply get from point A to B and kill as many zombies while taking as little damage as you can on the way. You will need to be confident in taking down the, uh, zombie ogres and the zombie deer, and sometimes it's good to remember how to craft a certain weapon, so you will want to have done the campaign on Ironman to get all your basic skills down before you start the challenges. Once you have that, these challenges are really quite easy. Just aim for headshots and keep moving, checking your map for pointers along the way.

The most important parts for scoring seem to be:
1) How much damage you take.
2) How fast you go.
3) How many zombies you kill.

Oh and level up your character as they seem to carry over from campaign, armor and all! I used Kenji for his high precision and it's paid off for me.
